What They Are Saying
Austin Theriault - No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150: "Gateway is one of those tracks that is very technical. Some of the corners are different plus you have some bumps and areas where you accelerate and are under braking. I felt like we had a pretty productive test session with the Cooper Standard Ford F-150. I kept pushing the limits at the test and I'm going to continue that this weekend and hopefully pick up some more time. That's the only way you can get better."
Chad Kendrick - Crew Chief, No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150: "We went with a whole different thought process and setup with the Cooper Standard Ford F-150 at the test and I think worked out pretty well. The new tire we'll have at Gateway changes the ballgame a lot. Last year the tire we had there would fall off but this tire doesn't fall off as much and there's not as much initial speed. This new tire does wear so I don't think you can leave a set on past a full fuel run. "
